ρ is the Density

Se is the Elevator Area

Ce is the Elevator Chord

Vt is the Velocity at Tail section

CH is the coefficient of Hing Moment

Hinge Moment is defined as the force required to deflect a control surface. In small, relatively slow airplanes, hinge moments are not very large, pilots move the controls with ease. But as control surfaces get larger and speeds get higher, Hinge Moments Grow Rapidly.
